DVD Review : Shaun the Sheep : Spring Shena-a-anigans

I've recommended Shaun the Sheep over and over to my Mommy friends as well as to Aunts and Uncles who want to stock their house with kid friendly dvds that they will enjoy as well. Shaun is, in our opinion, one of the funniest dvd series for kids, families, and even adults love him. Shaun the Sheep's newest dvd is spring themed and has seven episodes that you won't be able to resist laughing at.

Included on this dvd :

  • “Spring Lamb” - It’s bath time for a reluctant Timmy. In trying to escape, Timmy gets a spring attached to his tail. It’s up to the flock to catch the bouncing baby sheep and return him to the tub before he destroys the farm.
  • “Supersize Timmy” - Timmy accidentally eats a tomato grown with “Miracle-Grow” fertilizer and expands to become the King Kong of sheep. Shaun must keep the giant toddler out of sight while trying to figure out how to return him to normal size.
  • “Bagpipe Buddy” - The sheep discover a set of bagpipes on the rubbish dump which they immediately misidentify as a sick emu. They set about trying to nurse it back to health before releasing it back into the wild.
  • “Cheetah Cheater” – A wildlife film inspires Pidsley the cat to play a prank on the flock by disguising himself as a leopard. Shaun is convinced there is a huge beast on the loose and concocts a plan to catch it.
  • “Lock Out” - While preparing for bed, the Farmer manages to lock himself out of the house and is stuck outside in his pajamas. He decides to spend the night in the barn but his incessant snoring drives the flock mad. Shaun heads up an operation to return him to his bed without waking him up
  • “Draw the Line” – The flock hijack a road line-painting machine and cause chaos while creating giant works of art in the field.
  • “Ewe’ve Been Framed” – When Shaun accidentally breaks the farmer’s glasses, he and Bitzer have their work cut out trying to prevent their short-sighted master from having mishaps around the farm.  Things get a little hair-raising for the flock before Shaun manages to replace the smashed up spectacles.
We are serious fans of the smallest sheep on the farm, Timmy, and I was soo pleased to see two episodes deciated to our favorite pint sized sheep. Though Supersize Timmy was our favorite and I can only imagine what I would do if one of my own munchkins got a hold of a toddler growth potion, heh!  Also included on the dvd is special Timmy episode as a bonus "Timmy's Plane", a sheep sheering dvd game, and a special Timmy song. I guess I must not be the only Timmy fan out there, though I can't say I'm disappointed as I love the extra Timmy time.

I know I've said it before but one of my favorite features about the Shaun The Sheep series is the most of the characters do not talk! I know that sounds odd but it makes for perfect viewing when the baby is asleep or in the car when you do not want to be distracted by a ton of dialog. Though I can not guarantee that you won't laugh so hard you will wake up the entire house. Though a lack of a real dialog does not at all hinder you from understanding or down right laughing at what's going on with the sheep.
